Lundqvist interview

Quote:
IHWC.NET: What have you been hearing about the New York Rangers, the hockey team that drafted you?

Lundqvist: I guess I know about them from seeing some games on television. My agent is talking to them next week about the upcoming season. My goal is to play at least with the Hartford Wolfpack in the AHL next year and maybe it will take one or two years to play for the Rangers. I would like to take a new step in my career and move over to Hartford and hopefully the Rangers.
Quote:
IHWC.NET: What sort of changes do you expect?

Lundqvist: The game is much faster over there and they shoot a lot, and they are quality shots. I think it will fit my game because I have an aggressive style. I like to come out and challenge the shooter. Then there is the possibility of changing the rules about the padding and handling the puck behind the net. We will see how that affects my game.

real happy to hear that first quote. IIRC, he once said he didn't want to come to NA to play in the AHL, only the AHL. If true, im happy to see he changed his thinking.

Yeah, me too. I'm glad he's eager to get over here and is willing to play in Hartford if they want him too.

Don't underestimate what a rebuilding process will do towards attracting young players.

If they can actually see a potential reward for a situation, players usually are more willing to take the steps necessary to get there. If you give them no light at the end of the tunnel they tend to get uninterested.

that is so true...already we are hearing players say that the rangers would be a good fit for them, whereas 2 summers ago kurt sauer turned down the rangers cause he knew he wouldn't get a chance...

So if by some chance we do get rid of Dunham and McLennan, either by buyout or trade, I could see us bringing in Salo as a FA to help coach Lundqvist in adapting to the move from Sweden to NA

Nice jpg's SantaCruZer.
Who would pick up Dunham? Nobody, when they see the price tag.
Maybe a trade sometime during the season, when Lundqvist comes up and takes the job. I'm all for trying to move Dunham and sticking with Mclennan/Valiquette in the mean time.
I just don't think a team would want Dunham with his contract and all.
If players like Lundqvuist/Prucha/Kondratiev and maybe Immonen get time on the ice along with up and coming players like Balej and Tyutin and if players like Poti and Lundmark straighten out their play and get going, I definitely think it would attract younger players in coming over.
But, first things first.
A coach.
